Cricket India: Ashwin defends his bowling action during Asia Cup

Ravichandaran Ashwin defends himself over the bowling action he tried in Asia Cup. Ashwin usually raises up, who prefers the flicked carrom ball as the doosra, has regularly bowled in half sleeves until he showed more good impact during the Asia Cup earlier this month. Ususally Offspinners’ actions when they bowl the doosras, have been under eye of many umpires and officials, as it becomes a common problem of bending so over the last few years for bowlers to fit to long sleeves so that only could covered their elbows.

I, Money/ head of India’s last league match in World T20, against Australia, beforewill be saying some thing. Ashwin looks to defended his action as an experiment, saying he did not want to come behind in bowlers who derived more advantage from long sleeves shirts that allowed them to use their elbows a laboentals,” said Ashwin.

In Asia Cup, Ashwin has experimented with a vastly different action, similar to Sunil Narine’s, and also bowled with longer sleeves. He was seen practising the different action release during training in Wellington during India’s recent tour to New Zealand. While he has not tried either the different action or long sleeves during the World T20 so far, Ashwin said it was something he has not ruled out attempting again,” said Ashwin.

I want to do something different. I want to keep trying something – unless you try you don’t go and venture and find out what can work or not,” Ashwin said. “I’d never bowled in full-sleeves before ( Asia Cup ). So I wanted to see how it would feel. And I just wanted to see if you can get more revs on the ball, if you can do a little bit with your elbow, as much as (is allowed), that is. That’s what it was all about. You can get a lot of advantage with these things. So why should I lag behind if someone else is getting a competitive edge?
